The Wounded Warriors Made a Difference, Now It’s Our Turn.

Sanford Edward knows about contracts: Written and oral. Explicit and implicit. He should, he’s the President and Principal owner of one of the most successful real estate ventures in Southern California, The Strand at Headlands in Dana Point.

“I started my business with $11,000 of capital in 1991,” Edward said. “One of my guiding principles has always been that a person is only as good as their word.”

And it’s obvious that hard work, sacrifice, and dedication were instrumental to Sanford’s success, as he built one of California’s leading land development companies.

The ideas of sacrifice and dedication motivated Sanford to become a supporter of the Wounded Warriors program of the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, stationed at Camp Pendleton.

“After all, who makes a bigger sacrifice than those who put their life on the line for our freedom and liberty?”, said Edward.  They leave their families to defend the United States in combat operations about the world.”

“I’m proud to be a part of the Wounded Warrior contract,” Edward said.

That is why Edward and his company, Headlands Reserve, LLC sponsor the Wounded Warriors.  Peter Hammer, a former Marine who served in the Viet Nam war, serves as a Board member, said that Sanford has “always been there when it counts.”

“Everyone can make a difference in their own way,” said Hammer. “Earlier this year, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame raised money by walking more than 100 miles to Canton, Ohio. Others donate time. As a long-time supporter, Sanford Edward is there when we need him. He’s an example for others in the business community. Showing them how they can make a difference too.

SHOP LOCAL: Dana Point Nursery, A Garden Store Treasure for More Than 60 Years


Dana Point Nursery rests at the gateway to the city’s town center, just steps from the Strand at Headlands’ luxury beachfront community. Family owned since 1947, it is everything you dreamed a nursery should be without the Newport Beach Rogers Gardens’ fuss and frills (no offense intended). Part of the nursery’s magic comes from its owner Harry Otsubo, who celebrated his 100-year birthday last January. Over the years, the Dana Point icon has stood stedfast in his commitment to maintaining the small-town integrity and charm of his nursery and Dana Point. He held on to his nursery’s retro signage foregoing modern updates. He worked with Harry Chandler, the former owner of the Dana Point Headlands (now, The Strand at Headlands) and the Los Angeles Times to help preserve the town’s character. Several years ago, Dana Point honored the horticulturist with one of the town’s park named after him — The Harry Otsubo Community Gardens. Vegetable planting season is in full swing at Dana Point nursery. Customers can find a wide variety of tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce and herbs. 34100 Pacific Coast Hwy, (949) 496-5137.
